Netflix in Early Talks For HOUSE OF CARDS Season 3
Despite previous rumors that Netflix's popular series HOUSE OF CARDS, starring Kevin Spacey, would likely end after season 2, Deadline is now reporting that Netflix is in talks for a third season of the original drama.
"Our intent is that the show keep going for sure. It was a 26-episode commitment. It was not our intent that it just run for two seasons," Netflix's Ted Sarandos said during his keynote speech at Film Independent's 2013 conference. He later told Deadline that "talks are in progress right now, so stay tuned."

Based on the BBC miniseries of the same name, this wicked political drama slithers beneath the curtain and through the back halls of greed, sex, love and corruption in modern Washington D.C. An uncompromising exploration of power, ambition and the American way, "House of Cards" orbits Francis Underwood (Kevin Spacey), the House Majority Whip. Underwood is the politician's politician - masterful, beguiling, charismatic and ruthless. He and his equally ambitious wife Claire (Robin Wright) stop at nothing to ensure their ascendancy.
In addition to Spacey and Wright the series also stars Kate Mara ("American Horror Story"), Corey Stoll ("Midnight in Paris"), Kristen Connolly ("The Cabin in the Woods"), Michael Kelly ("The Adjustment Bureau") and Sakina Jaffrey ("Definitely Maybe"). The first season of "House of Cards" is executive produced by David Fincher, Beau Willimon, Joshua Donen, Eric Roth, Kevin Spacey, Dana Brunetti, Andrew Davies, Michael Dobbs and John Melfi. The series is produced by Donen/Fincher/Roth and Trigger Street Productions, Inc. in association with Media Rights Capital.
Netflix's HOUSE OF CARDS netted nine Emmy nominations this year. Production on the second season of the show kicked off last April and will be finishing up this month. Season two is set to debut on Netflix in early 2014.
